Erika Helps Us Remember Michael Jackson

Five years ago today, Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, passed away.

That being said, it seemed fortuitous that yesterday, across from the New York Stock Exchange,  I met Erika, who has a bunch of tattoos, but whose left arm is just plain "Bad":


This iconic image is from this cover:


Erika explains:
"I got the Bad album cover because that's my favorite Michael Jackson album ... I think this was, like, right before he started to fall off the wagon, kinda, but this is the last good Michael as far as his face and his appearance ... and I'm an '80s baby, so that was my favorite album of the Eighties."
She credited this great work to Chris Mensah at Pinz-N-Needlez Tattoo in Washington D.C. I last spotted Mensah's work in 2009 here.

We also commemorated Michael's zombie self two years ago here.

Thanks to Erika for helping us commemorate the passing of one of the greatest musicians of our time!
